This pumpkin pie was a treat given to me by one of my Pilates clients after my first lumpectomy last November. And yes, it's not a cancer fighting food. It's a celebratory one. "Once in a while a little treat is ok," said my doctors and nurses when I called them about this little slice of pie. Hey, I didn't want cancer again. So this is a case where I was told, it is okay to have your pie and eat it too.

Ariadne Greenberg/ Transformations in yoga
 In 1980 there was an article published in Yoga Journal by Joel Kramer. He talked about the balance between control and surrender and about how in yoga you have pushers and surrenders and that the pushers need to learn to surrender and this surrenderers need to learn to push.

One of the most common fitness class misconceptions that I encounter is the notion that you have to be at a certain level of fitness or have some sort of expert knowledge or experience to join the class. This is so false! Fitness classes are designed to help you get fit, or maintain your level of physical fitness. There is no requirement that you need to possess a certain amount of skill to join a class, or that you have to ‘be good enough’ to take the class.

Ariadne Greenberg/ Transformations in yoga
Sensei Dan used to talk about what the kids in his dojo learned: not just high kicks, and blocks, and so on, but also self control, the ability to stand up to bullies, and self respect. With any physical discipline there are physical end points, but also benefits of understanding, character, and behaviour. The practice I know best is yoga. Not simply a physical practice, it is unsurprising how much one gets from a long term yoga practice. Lately I have seen a lot of articles on 'the benefits of yoga'.

Spring time marks the time where energy comes back up to the surface and new growth surges. This is no more true than in Wisconsin where we will be come out of hibernation to soak up the first sunny day and everyone there after. It amazes me how good the first 40° day feels in Spring when it nearly shuts me down in the Fall.

What seems like a lifetime ago already, I served as a Montessori teacher for adolescents. In my Montessori orientation I heard the phrase repeatedly "Grace and courtesy". While this was not specifically a Montessori teaching, it was a philosophy adopted by Montessori educators because of the way it honored ones place in the larger community. Grace referred to a peace and respect towards yourself. Courtesy referred to that same peace and respect towards others. Since those days long past as a Montessori educator, I have returned to my original classroom...the gym.
